THIS dance really has a Scottish origin, and in its traditional form was in a two-in-the-bar rhythm with music from the pipes. In modern times it has become a kind of country dance in a quick two-in-the-bar, made up of two sections either of four or of eight bars each, both of them repeated. Beethoven and Schubert both left several Ecossaises.
TONIGHT'S talk is the first of a series of five which are being given by Mr. Knights, who is a Fellow of the Incorporated Sales Managers' Association. He has contributed an article on Salesmanship to the forthcoming edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, and is the author of several books on the subject. This series is a new departure in wireless programmes, but in the present era it is hardly an exaggeration to say that Salesmanship is the mortar which binds the bricks of industrial civilization together. In his first talk Mr. Knights considers the relations of salesmanship to the community in general, to industry and to social life.
WALTZES BY ZIEHRER AND KOMZAK

VIENNA has long regarded itself, and with every right, as one of the world's important centres of music ; it was the birthplace of much that we now treasure as among music's proudest possessions. But, alongside of its many activities on behalf of serious music, it has long been the home, too, of gay and sparkling music of the ballroom and of the comic opera stage.
Both are happily represented in this short programme of lighthearted melody and rhythm.
SO far, in this series, theatre managers as different in outlook as Sir Barry Jackson ,
Sir Nigel Playfair , and Mr. Basil Dean , have described their aims and ideals. Miss Velona Pilcher , who gives tonight's contribution, can claim to speak for what is called in America the little art theatre '-that is to say, the theatre that definitely does not aim at the support of the general public, but offers a small group of students of the drama an opportunity to see interesting dramatic experiments unlikely ever to be produced on the commercial stage.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
